Yes, but understand: having all the Staals now is a foregone conclusion because Jordan is here. Jordan could just as easily have gone to NYC to play with Marc. Now that's resolved, and Marc has one choice, and once choice only, for the family reunion.

Not sure I agreed with the Jordan trade, but I understood why the timing made sense. Now that we have a critical mass of Staals, we must wait for Marc -- and I believe we will.
